Unknown product spotted at General Dynamics factory

23

The American concern General Dynamics is known as a manufacturer of military tracked and wheeled vehicles for the US armed forces and their allies. This time, an unknown product was noticed at its facilities.


According to Sputnik, the equipment can be seen in one of the photographs devoted to the visit of Army Minister Ryan McCarthy to the company's production site on April 23, 2020, where he was presented with a new light tank.

In the background, behind piles of equipment, you can see an armored vehicle of brown color, partially covered by coiled tracks and tarpaulins. As noted by the publication, although most of the contour of the product remains hidden from view, some of its details are familiar.

In particular, one can distinguish angular lines in the style of Tesla Cybertruck, as well as equipment located on the roof, supposedly allowing the installation of a heavy machine gun or other weapon. Side windows are made in the form of an arrow-shaped parallelogram.

The armored vehicle is not similar to any of the land systems presented on the General Dynamics website. However, it has a number of similarities with the Mbombe 4x4 product, an armored personnel carrier manufactured by the Paramount Group, a South African company.

      Let trash remain in this heap ...

    eh, if readers really want to find out what kind of car it is and not just write some crap, I recommend reading a normal article, everything is uncritical in it https://defence-blog.com/army/mystery-military-vehicle-spotted -at-general-dynamics-facility-in-detroit.html

    Well, I understand it can be called an unknown product a car flying above the earth at extremely low altitudes. And this means not having problems with overcoming any form of surface and its condition, as well as not afraid of mines and other obstacles. At the same time, the almost silent operation of engines and rising dust is nothing more than a tank and other vehicles.

        Yes, everything is much more prosaic! The simplest double-sided turbine with a new arrangement of blades forms a reverse process of air flow and a very powerful lifting vector. No need to complicate anything. Everything is trivial just to build algorithms for centrifugal and linear vectors of motion of air flows - a banal tornado supported by a turbine

    Have you decided to copy something from the South African machine? Most likely, single copies are purchased for review. They take from everyone the best design solutions.

    Something somehow went heap with the armored vehicles. For every taste and color. I won't be surprised if they make something more "fake" by design.

    Why is the unknown? The usual armored car. What is the noise about?

    Also "unknown product" to me! This device is already 13 (thirteen!) Years old.

      By the way, the machine is more interesting than it might seem at first glance. It is built around an armored capsule with a crew, and the power plant consists of four motor wheels, a battery in the floor and a diesel generator.

        The Germans, it seems, wanted to make such a tank back in the war - in terms of motor-wheels and a diesel generator, but something "did not grow together". And someone else used this, I wonder?

          The Germans, like, back in the war they wanted to make such a tank
          ACS "Ferdinand", Pz8 "Maus". In the USSR, they dabbled with the IS-6.
          There is nothing revolutionary about power transmission and a hybrid propulsion system itself. It has received the widest distribution in the Navy, on the railway and among all kinds of special equipment from small loaders to huge dump trucks.
          This machine stands out for its specific characteristics and innovative solutions specifically for military equipment.

    The armored vehicle is not similar to any of the land systems presented on the General Dynamics website. However, it has some things in common with Mbombe 4x4.

    )) is an American technology demonstrator, a hybrid AGMV (Advanced Ground Mobility Vehicle) JLTV program. The car is more than a dozen years old
